The past month has been such an amazing one for the Alana Mitchell Skincare line, and I wanted to hop onto the blog today to announce some BIG news:

On Wednesday, May 23rd, the Hallmark Channel series Home & Family showcased two of the newest, most innovative products from the line, the 4-in-1 Cleansing Pod and the Quick Comeback Masque


In early May, the BeautyID Awards announced their finalists for the year – and the Alana Mitchell 4-in-1 Cleansing Pod is in the running!

For those of you who missed the Hallmark Channel airing, you can hop over to the SkinCare by Alana page on Facebook to view it! Kym Douglas did a superb job demonstrating to Debbie and Mark how easy and unique the two products are to use. (I will transcribe the video below this post.)

The 2017 BeautyID Awards

The BeautyID Awards are an annual event hosted by Cosmoprof North America (in association with Beauty Packaging), and it stands for the Beauty Innovation & Design Awards. These awards aim to highlight the year’s most innovative formulas and package design in beauty across several categories and price points. To be included is such an honor!

The winners will be picked by a Judging Committee and announced at the event in early July, but there is also an Audience Choice Winner that will be determined through voting on the BeautyID Awards’ site. To cast your vote, you can hop over to their Audience Choice Awards page – voting ends July 8th!


Thank you so much for your continued support. I hope that you’ll take a moment to cast a vote for the Beauty ID Audience Choice Awards, and I appreciate each and every one of you!

Hallmark Channel: Home & Family segment video transcript – May 23, 2017

Kym: Here is what I want to tell you guys. Okay, so, the next thing is washing your face. You know how you get on the planes, you get in the car, you’re out with the kids, and it’s a little hard to keep your face cleansed? So, I have got this wonderful 4-in-1 Cleansing Pod by Alana Mitchell.

Let me show you how easy it is to use. Now, look, girls – seriously, you could fit this in –

Orly: My wallet!

Debbie: In your pocket! You could put it in your jeans pocket.

Kym: So you know that there’s the 3-ounce regulation at the airport, right? Oh, we don’t have any worries about that because all we do is we pop it open, and we take out this little pod. Oh, it’s stuck… There we go! I didn’t take the whole seal off. So, this is the whole thing. This is everything. You discard this . Right, now you take this little half-moon –

Paige: Wait. That’s supposed to clean your entire face?

Kym: I’m so glad you said that, Paige. Okay, so you take it into the bathroom of the plane, or in the, you know, gas station –

Mark: What do you soak it in?

Kym: A little bit of warm water, Mark. Now, all of a sudden, you’re going to start seeing – look! Here’s the suds. So you’ve got your cleansing. You’ve got your foaming. You’ve got –

Paige: It’s all in the little sponge.

Kym: And double the size.

Mark: It’s like dehydrated goodness!

Kym: And remember the little small pod?

Debbie: No way! Stop it!

Kym: It’s a whole – literally, I’m doing magic at the Magic Castle tonight.

Debbie: Can you also – can you use that as a makeup sponge?

Kym: (nods) As a blender.

Orly: Those are, like, 20 bucks!

Debbie: They’re super expensive.

Kym: Guys, I’m not kidding. Look at how much suds! I mean, this is crazy. I could wash all of our faces. Orly, feel this, it’s amazing! Look, it’s all – isn’t that great?

Orly: Ohhh, this is good!

Kym: So, super easy.

Debbie: I bet it’s moisturizing too!

Kym: Oh, and Debbie, one other thing. You can use it for five washings. You literally can use this for a week – that one pod.

Debbie: WHAT?!

Mark: Wow!


Kym: So, now, also by the Alana Mitchell line – which I love – is a little mask. Now you get, again, in a different environment. You want to go, you want to look your best –

Debbie: It’s very drying when you’re on the plane.

Kym: It is! So, this is – believe it or not – an entire mask.

And I did a little pre-tape at about 6 o’clock this morning, and came –

Mark: Yeah, right.

Kym: There it is! This is the whole thing – press down. So, everything’s sealed. You don’t have to worry about anything, you know, leaking in your –

Debbie: Exploding

Kym: Exploding. It’s a little, kind of, cotton-y ball in there. You mix it with your finger. The cotton ball disintegrates, turns into a gel – the gel is clear. You go into the bathroom – the bathroom on the flight, whatever – leave it on for a few minutes, and then wipe off your mask. It’s all right in here – oh, hi, I’m done!

Debbie: You looked gorgeous doing that, by the way!

Mark: At 6am, no doubt.

Orly: No makeup on your face at all!

Debbie: You looked like Elizabeth Montgomery from Bewitched there!

Orly: The technology of these things is so fascinating!

Kym: Isn’t it great?!
